Without doubt, HKN boss, Davido enjoyed a remarkable year in 2014 as he has so far won a total of 23 different awards in the year which includes the Headies, BET, MTV, NEA awards among several others.
In a recent chat with NET, he was asked which is his favourite award among those he won in the year and he said: “I don’t want to discredit any award show, I got 23 awards this year but the one I really wanted to get was the BET and I finally got it.”
It wasn’t just all winning for Davido, he was nominated in a couple of awards like The Soul Train Awards, MOBO awards and most notably the Channel O Music Video Awards where he got 5 nominations but didn’t win any.
Reacting to this, Davido said “Everybody knew that it was planned, I even knew before the award show but I just had to perform for my boy, Lil Kesh but I knew before the award show that I wasn’t going to win.”
When NET probed further on how he came to know before the day that he wouldn’t win, Davido said: “Somebody told that they’ve gone funny and changed the names but it’s all good I’m still cool with them, I have Channel O Music Video Awards that I have won before. So they are trying to say MTV and BET are wrong, basically 17 million views compared to 600,000 views, do the math.”
